Today visit our nation's oldest European established city, St. Augustine, Florida founded by the Spanish in 1565. A trolley tour will acquaint you with this historic city's interesting past, trivia and humorous tales. Continue to explore St. Augustine on your own with a hop on/off trolley pass during your free time. Have dinner at a local restaurant before returning to Jekyll Island.
Tour St. Simons Island/Shrimp Boat Excursion
This morning visit St. Simons Island. Beloved by famous author Eugenia Price, learn the history of the Island with a local guide. Explore the charming Pier Village overlooking the Brunswick River and out to the Atlantic Ocean. Try some sweet Georgia Shrimp at one of the cafes for lunch on your own before crossing the causeway to Brunswick for a shrimp boat cruise. Captain Larry Credle and crew will plow the marshlands, dragging a net, and pull in wild Georgia white shrimp, stingrays, horseshoe crabs the size of tennis rackets, baby hammerhead sharks, or maybe a cannonball jellyfish. They'll tell us all about what is caught and even give us a chance to hold some of them. This evening dine at a local favorite restaurant.
Ameila Island/Fernandina Beach/Island Sightseeing Cruise
Rise and shine! After breakfast visit beautiful Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island. Amelia Island is the only place in America where eight different flags have flown. Explore the eclectic shops and local eateries. During our 2-hour sightseeing cruise hear the rich history of Amelia and Cumberland Island with views of wildlife along the way. Cruise by Fernandina's shrimp boats, historic Old Towne and Ft. Clinch, and maybe see the wild horses of Cumberland Island.
